Claims Governor Davis Has
Usurped His Authority in
the Canal Zone.

on the Unwarranted Assumption

Over the Canal Zone, Instead of
-Merely Holding a Long Time
Ijeaxe -Urges the Negotiation of a
New Treaty That Shall More

a ma.
Washington, D. "C, Nov. 6. The
full text of the protest made by the
Republic of Panama against the
present administration of affairs in
the canal zone has been given out
in Panama and has just reached
Washington. It is in the form of a
letter written by Minister Obaldls to
Secretary Hay under date of August
Charges Usurpatioa.
In the letter Obaldls charges Gen
eral Davis, governor of the zone, with
unwarranted usurpation of authority
ana violation of the provisions of
the Hay-Varilla treaty. He avers
that Davis proceeded on the untena
ble assumption that the United
States has acquired absolute sover
eignty over the canal strip. This po
sition he assails vigorously.
He urges not only the suspension
of objectionable regulations, but the
negotiation of a new treaty which
will more clearly define the trtj;hl
of the republic and bwler protect
her IntereBtB.
The letter interprets the treaty as
merely giving the United States
lease of the territory, while the
rights of Panama to the canal -strip
remain fixed and unalterable.
W ill Main Panama.
The minister asserts that the .levy.
lug of duties and establishment of
postoffices by the United States will
result practically Jn the commercial
ruin of Panama.
The protest closes with an appeal
to the secretary to suspend the ob
jectionable regttlaMons imposed by
Governor Davis until a complete .and
satisfactory agreement scan ;he
reached by the two governments.
